Please go to 
http://pir.georgetown.edu/biocuration2012.html/instructions.html to 
submit your abstract/s. Please forward this email to your colleagues.

The International Biocuration Conference is a unique event for curators 
and developers of biological databases to discuss their work, promote 
collaborations, and foster a sense of community. The conference will 
include three plenary talks featuring prominent scientists: Fritz Roth, 
Mark Yandell, and Rich Roberts.

We look forward to your participation to the conference. Abstracts for 
posters and oral presentations must be submitted by December 9th, 2011.

Conference topics include:
- Ontologies, standards and best practices, including gold standard 
datasets;
- Protein annotation; sequences, structures and pathways;
- Community annotation and Wikis;
- Genomics and metagenomics data curation;
- High-throughput data (focus on NGS and MS data) curation and presentation;
- Literature collection, text mining and curation;
- Tools to assist curation, including automated pipelines;
- Phenotype annotation.

In addition, between two and six workshops will be run depending on 
interest from the attendees:

- Interactions with publishers
- Quality information in support of annotations
- Disease and phenotype annotation
- How to best outreach to users?
- Protein (sequence/structure, pathway) annotation
